Watercoloring

I've been taking photos to watercolor.  

My friend Shelley O. got this latest addiction started and is very supportive.  Here's her favorite of my work so far.

 I like to do multiple studies to learn and play.  Our art group had the challenge last week of working in the style of our favorite artist.  I've loved Kandinsky since I found the little book of his work on my grandmother's coffee table.  It turns out he had a circle period. But I get ahead of myself.  Here's the moment I was struggling to capture.

Getting that burst of light is easy with a camera...and a huge challenge for me in watercolor.  Here's my first smeary attempt.

And the second,  green light....grrr....but I like the rocks.

And now for Kandinsky's influence.  If I can't get it representationally I can abstract. the light ...white, dark green, yellow

and the leaves and trees have such great angles and collor contrast:

And putting it all together...

Here's my favorite of mine so far.

The original scene looked like this.

So my skill doesn't match Paradise.  Yet.  Luckily I get to keep practicing.  This is next.

It seems to always be something new. Just the way I like it.

Namaste,

Lauri
